Twilight is the first in a series of four books written by Stephenie Meyer. I'm hearing it's the new craze for teens and tweens. I must admit, I did not think I would like any book that involved vampires, but I was delightfully surprised.
The whole time I was reading Twilight, I was considering my 10-year-old neighbor (well 11-year-old neighbor -- she just had a birthday) and if it was appropriate for her to read. She, I think, is on book #3, Eclipse, and has really enjoyed them. She told me she was not allowed to read book #4 because of the content. Can't wait to see what is in that one!
Well, moms out there, I guess I have to say I think you are the best judge. There is no sex in the book, but it is quite racy. There's lots of "breath on my skin" type stuff and Bella does have a nighttime visitor in her room. The main character, Bella Swan, is 17. It seems to me like it was probably written for that age group.
Stephenie Meyer, you get an A+ for twilight.
